  1. Inflatable Airborne Manned/Unmanned Payload Delivery/Recovery Systems

    SBC: Aerospace Recovery Systems,            Topic: N/A

    Several objectives in this proposal include systematic study of innovative ways and means to improve survivability and safety of airborne platforms (C-130, C-17, Helicopter), flight crew, paratroops, cargo and equipment. High altitude deployment and glide operations, and airborne snatch and recovery of individuals or cargo from ground or water pick-up sites will also be studied. This proposal will ...

  2. A Phototransistor Based on GaN-A1xGa1-xN Heterostructure

    SBC: Apa Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to demonstrate the feasibility of fabricating a phototransistor using the A1xGa1-xN material system. The proposed phototransitor is based on a GaN-A1xGa1-xN heterojunction which exhibits a 2-D electron gas conduction when a bias is applied on the source-drain terminals. The device is maintained in a nominally OFF state by applying a reverse bias voltage on the gate terminal. With optica ...

  4. Prototype Storage and Delivery Device for Cryogenic Solid Hydrogen Propellant

    SBC: Apd Cryogenics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The use of cryogenic solid hydrogen as a rocket propellant may lead to major advances in rocket propulsion. To use solid hydrogen as a propellant requires a system designed to solidfy, store, and transport hydrogen. We propose to study different methods for creating H2 for more than one hour at temperature less than 10 K. Alternative methods of delivering the solid hydrogen to the combustion chamb ...

  5. EFFECTS OF SOLID-MECHANIC PROPERTIES OF ENERGETIC MATERIALS ON MUNITION SENSITIVITY

    SBC: Dyna East Corp.            Topic: N/A

    TRADITIONALLY, THE DETONATION HAS BEEN TREATED BY THE SHOCK THEORY, AND EXPLOSIVES AND PROPELLANTS HAVE BEEN CONSIDERED AS ENERGETIC FLUIDS. MANY SOLID PROPERTIES HAVE NOT BEEN MEASURED AND ARE NOT AVAILABLE FROM THE HANDBOOKS. RECENT RESULTS IN MUNITION SENSITIVITY STUDIES SHOW THAT SHEARING IS ONE OF THE MAIN MECHANISMS IN CAUSING DETONATION, AND IS CONTROLLED BY CERTAIN SOLID PROPERTIES. IN THE ...

  7. Novel Doping Sources for III-V Molecular Beam Epitaxy

    SBC: Essential Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The developement of four different doping sources for use within an MBE system is proposed. Two high purity, high uniformity sources for use with Carbon, and two such sources will be developed for use with Tellurium. The purity of the species produced by each cell will be studied with a Residual Gas Analyzer. Recommendations concerning the use of these cells in a solid source MBE system will be su ...

  8. Storage Heater Material Optimization

    SBC: Fluidyne Engineering Corp.            Topic: N/A

    High temperature storage heaters are needed to provide clean, hot air for aerodynamic and propulsion testing of hypersonic vehicles. Vitiation heaters do not properly simulate the vehicle flight conditions, thus limiting the ability to develop tomorrow's aircraft in a timely manner. Yttria-zirconia storage heater development work was sponsored by the Air Force in the 1960's, but did not produce an ...

  9. ADVANCED HEAT SHIELD MATERIALS

    SBC: General Sciences, Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES THE EFFORTS REQUIRED TO STUDY THE EFFECTS OF VARIOUS MATERIALS ON THE REDUCTION OF ELECTRONIC INTERFACE IN THE PLASMA OF A RE-ENTRY VEHICLE HEAT SHIELD. A FUNDEMENTAL UNDERSTANDING OF THE MECHANISM BY MEANS OF WHICH THESE MATERIALS ACHIEVE A REDUCTION IN ELECTRONIC INTERFERENCE IS THE GOAL OF THE PROPOSED INVESTIGATIONS, IN WHICH THE GSI FLAME TEST APPARATUS IS USED TO DETE ...
